Plant identification please

Postby Pickles » Sun Feb 16, 2014 8:03 pm

Hi all
Could anyone please help in identifying the attached plant, I have them popping up all over my garden with no parent plant in our yard I'm unsure what this is. I have let one grow for around twelve months but it is yet to flower.
Regards pickles.

Hi everyone
Thank you all for taking the time to identify this plant for me. I have been pulling small plants out for a few years now so seeds must be spreading from a niegbouring property, I don't feel guilty having pulled quite a few out already knowing that they are weeds.
Thank you again pickles.
